As many of you have no doubt noticed, story notifications are now working. Chances are you are getting a lot of notifications. If you are and it's bugging you, I'd recommend trimming your notifications a bit.
Under your username in the upper right of the page, is "Notification Settings"
** Scroll down page until you see Stories **
Preferences will vary as to what and how you want to get notified. These are my settings:
The right-hand column is email. I get more than enough emails, so I have them all shut off. You can turn them on, if you wish. Just realize that you might get a lot of emails if you do.
Most of the issues we've been contacted occur because of the "Notify me when a comment is posted to a story I follow". Since we get over 1000 comments posted to stories per week, that's a lot of potential notifications, if you are following a lot of active stories.
Hope this helps
